What the hell is this?


This thing is situated adjacent to runway 23 at London Heathrow, next to a Virgin Atlantic hangar. It looks like a jet, but there's no way it was ever an actual aircraft. It's some kind of aircraft simulacrum. Chromate green and rust, with a body that looks like a reinforced fuel tank. It's fixed in place.

No prize for solving this.

Thus spake the rabbit.

That'd be a donation from Area 51.

Or a Nazi leftover.

Or a model.

Maybe it is artwork !

Finally. Sean on the Atheists in Scotland group at Atheist Nexus gave me the lowdown. These are used for Fire and Rescue training. They torch them and let the brigade put them out. Brilliant!
